This British Homes and Gardens magazine from 1934 only set me back $4 (that's cheaper than most modern magazines on the market) at an antique store. I bought it for its glorious cover illustration; the stone building and shady tulip garden are pure cheer. The magazine is filled with appliance and real estate ads, sewing projects, black and white photographs of home interiors, advice on entertaining, recipes, decorating ideas, gardening arrangements, and so on in the realm of domestic activity. I'm amazed that a magazine from 1934 could still be in such good condition. It's so neat to get a glimpse of how people ran their homes 80 years ago!
